The sons of Abraham by Keturah.
Genesis 25:1 And Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah. Genesis 25:2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. Genesis 25:3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim. Genesis 25:4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
The division of his goods.
Genesis 25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac. Genesis 25:6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts; and he sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.
His age, and death.
Genesis 25:7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years. Genesis 25:8 And Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full [of years]; and was gathered to his people.
Genesis 25:9 And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre; Genesis 25:10 the field which Abraham purchased of the children of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
Genesis 25:11 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed Isaac his son; and Isaac dwelt by Beer-lahai-roi.
The generations of Ishmael.
Genesis 25:12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham: Genesis 25:13 and these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, Genesis 25:14 and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa; Genesis 25:15 Hadad, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah: Genesis 25:16 these are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their villages, and by their encampments; twelve princes according to their nations.
His age, and death.
Genesis 25:17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people. Genesis 25:18 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: he abode in the presence of all his brethren.
Genesis 25:19 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat Isaac: Genesis 25:20 and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian, to be his wife.
Isaac prayeth for Rebekah, being barren.
Genesis 25:21 And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
The children strive within her womb.
Genesis 25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, wherefore do I live? And she went to inquire of the LORD. Genesis 25:23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, And two peoples shall be separated even from thy bowels: And the one people shall be stronger than the other people; And the elder shall serve the younger.
The birth of Esau and Jacob.
Genesis 25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. Genesis 25:25 And the first came forth red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. Genesis 25:26 And after that came forth his brother, and his hand had hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
Genesis 25:27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents. Genesis 25:28 Now Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: and Rebekah loved Jacob.
Esau selleth his birthright.
Genesis 25:29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came in from the field, and he was faint: Genesis 25:30 and Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red [pottage]; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. Genesis 25:31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. Genesis 25:32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall the birthright do to me? Genesis 25:33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Genesis 25:34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: so Esau despised his birthright.
